Abstract

The purpose of this study was to design and evaluate a novel target nanoparticle for disease detection and drug delivery using the biotin–avidin binding system. The formed lectin-conjugated chitosan fluorescent nanoparticles were of spherical shape (100–200 nm in diameter), which were more stable under light than pure fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC).
